Mon, 04/28/2014
Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry (https://www.facebook.com/mascotry), a group of Native parents and their allies from across the country, are calling on Nike, Inc. to stop selling products that feature the Cleveland Indians' mascot Chief Wahoo. EONM has launched a Facebook event page "#Dechief Nike Twitterstorm" to trend the Twitter hashtag #Dechief and demand Nike remove the caricature, Chief Wahoo Nike, from its products. "Dechiefed" hats, jerseys and jackets of Cleveland fans have been featured on social media where photos of team gear with Chief Wahoo removed are posted accompanied by the hashtag 3dechiefwahoo. The group also plans to protest at Nike's headquarters in Beaverton later this week.
In this KBOO Evening News story, Paul Roland speaks with the EONM's spokesperson, Jacqueline Keeler about the campaign. Keeler wrote a recent article for Salon.com about the issue:

She also spoke with Timothy Karr, the senior director of Strategy at Free Press.

Railroad companies submit details of oil and coal transport -- to whom?

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 04/24/2014
A report this week by The Oregonian newspaper uncovered a major loophole in the monitoring and regulation of coal and oil transport throughout the state of Oregon.
According to The Oregonian’s report, railroad companies are not required to submit full records to the department of transportation.
But it’s not clear which agency these records SHOULD be submitted to.
So no one really knows where the oil and coal trains traveling through Oregon are at any given time, or how much fuel is on any given train.
KBOO’s Jenka Soderberg followed up on the Oregonian report by talking to several of the government agencies involved.

Investigative journalist Michael Ruppert found dead of apparent suicide

Tue, 04/15/2014
Long time investigative journalist and former Los Angeles police officer Michael Ruppert has died of an apparent suicide at the age of sixty three.
Ruppert first gained notoriety in 1996 when he showed up at a contentious meeting with C-I-A director John Deutsch.
 
The news had just broken about the C-I-A’s involvement in trafficking cocaine in the black community throughout the nineteen eighties.
Michael Ruppert stood up during the question and answer session and said he had evidence of widespread involvement of the C-I-A in drug trafficking.
Here’s a recording of that 1996 town hall meeting.
 
The crack cocaine – C-I-A connection became the subject of multiple congressional investigations, and Ruppert’s allegations were proven correct.
But no prosecutions were ever made of c-i-a officials involved in the scheme.
Gary Webb, the San Jose Mercury News Reporter who first broke the story, was shunned by the media industry after the release of the story, and unable to get a job – but the facts of the story were never in question.
Webb committed suicide in 2004.
 
After the crack cocaine –C-I-A connection was exposed, Michael Ruppert became well known for his exposure of government conspiracies.
He questioned the official account of what happened in the september eleventh attacks, and became very involved in challenging the global oil industry.

His most recent book and movie were both called ‘Collapse’, documenting the impending collapse of modern capitalism because of the dependence on fossil fuels.  Here’s a clip of a 2010 interview with Michael Ruppert on KBOO, speaking with host Per Fagering.
 
Ruppert was found dead in his home in northern California this past Sunday of an apparent suicide.
